    Repeated crashes even in Sketch mode

    Dawn McClain

      I have SolidWorks 2016 and am getting repeated crashes. I can't even get through a sketch now without a crash. I just changed my graphics software to what is recommended from SolidWorks and it didn't work. My coworkers have the same computer and are not having any crashes. Please help!

          Is this something that just started or started when SW2016 was installed?  What version of Windows are you using?


          My first test would be to go into the registry and rename the SolidWorks 2016 key, then restart SolidWorks.  If the crashes still happen I would run system maintenance from SolidWorks Rx to clean up files.  After that I would probably do a SolidWorks repair.  There are also some Windows updates that cause issues with new installs of SW but I do not know what they are or where to find them.
